When a loved one is buried a temporary marker is sometimes placed until the engraver has finished and delivered the forever one. The first time I went to the national cemetery where my husband's cremains were interred you can imagine my dismay and horror that a word was misspelled. He was my soul mate; but it was spelled 'soule mate'. Somewhere somehow somebody goofed. Big time.
I wrote a note saying that it needed to be corrected as this was a dishonor to my husband and a blot on the cemetery. Two weeks ago I returned to see if the niche marker had been corrected. It was replaced and is now correct. This is the card I sent to let them know I had seen the change. It probably wasn't necessary but I felt it was the right thing to do.
